A new story trailer has been released for upcoming action RPG ELEX II by publisher THQ Nordic.
Set several years after Jax defeated The Hybrid in the original game, a new threat has awakened the dark Elex. It’s also awakened our hero from isolation, and so he must unite the peoples of Magalan. Can the opposing factions put aside their differences for the greater good?
The sequel promises a lived-in world with “unprecedented freedom” that’ll involve using your jetpack to navigate. NPCs in this world have long memories too, and will remember your actions and react accordingly. They can leave or join your group, depending on how you’ve behaved and can even die, effecting the story.
The first game launched on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC back in 2017. Our reviewer at the time, Alice, described the game as a “mixed bag” in her review. Developer Piranha Bytes are also well known for the Gothic and Risen series of RPGs, to give you an idea of what to expect.
Check out the ELEX II story trailer for yourself down below. As has been common with a few games from the THQ Nordic 10th Anniversary Showcase, there’s no release date just yet. ELEX II will land, however, on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC when it does.
